They should film your story and run it every Christmas! Sounds downright idyllic.
I have a friend who wouldn’t eat scallops when she learned they had blue eyes – I told her I’m partial to brown eyes but that never stopped me enjoying a good steak.
Are there any guidelines prohibiting selling fake scallops as the real thing? Once at Edisto Island we were at the pier where a guy had caught a ray; he was going to make ‘scallops’ out of it using a piece of pipe for a punch. He was the subject of a lot of unfair laughs later on; particularly hearing his young son chirping ‘Kill it! – Get the gun!’
